DUNDEE, UK – The 70-year-old Peter Robson died only a few hours.
But the man who suffered from terminal cystic fibrosis in the hospital had one last wish: to see his dog Shep, one last time.
He had Shep, a Border Collie, because the dog was a puppy. Shep was his companion after Robson's wife died.
The BBC reports that staff at Ninewells Hospital in Dundee Robson's family asked if there was anything in the house they wanted to take to hospital before he died. When they mentioned the dog, the family thought the request would never be given due to infection control regulations.
But then Robson's nurses were involved. And 20 minutes later, he was told Shep could visit. The dog was brought to his owner's bed where Robson could say goodbye.
Robson's granddaughter, Ashley Stevens, shared photos and videos of those who touched the last few moments and thanked Robson's nurses for going beyond them.
Grandfather's last and last wish was to see his dog again. Still shocked that the wish was fulfilled and they went far beyond today, making a dying man very happy, "she wrote.
Stevens added that her grandfather's nurse is" an absolute angel and we are eternally grateful , You do not know what that means to our grandfather. "
